after much agro , finally got it sorted an back together ,gave the pistons & calliper a good clean up then bled the front & rear brakes through , to get rid of the old fluid

When I bought my X1 off a member on here (after it had had a full service) it had a mild steel bolt used as the pad retaining pin and one that was threaded all the way along its length which was interesting :shock:

That pin was a sod to get out when I replaced the pads on mine recently

Reassembled it with plenty of coppaslip as a precaution

It carries no load apart from the weight of the pads. You could use some dowel, varnished of course...

Saying that, the pin and cap is only about 4 notes from HD

A lot of Hon*a pins fit. I think the VTR ones are the same. Loads on Ebay, so there's no need for the MoFuCo to take a single penny off you 8-)
